    Default when do you start planning for chistmas presents?

    I saw a couple of things yesterday that I decided to get for DD ... and put away for christmas.

    Is it too early to be planning for that?

    Nope not too early at all! Hubby and I are going to do the toy lay by next week to get ready for Xmas. Helps spread the cost and reduce the craziness closer to the day. I'm with you on this one 👍🏻

    I normally have most of present organised by now if not brought planned.
    This year I have 2 presents sorted.
    It didn't help that this year's toy sales suxed. No great specials and nothing that screamed by me I am perfect for....

    I start planning as soon as I start finding amazing bargains. We have a present cupboard here and I keep a record of what I have bought, ideas on what I want to get (as I will quite often have a random thought about what would be a great present) etc in a notebook in my bag. I try to take advantage of things as I see them and save hundreds this way.

    I do have a present cupboard ... but not usually with too many things for DD as I am a huge softie and end up giving them to her

    But this time I will be strong

    Last year I had most organised in toy sales but I found their interest changed so I haven't started this year yet.
